Flow cytometry utilizes signals from fluorescent markers to separate targeted cell populations for gene expression studies. However, the stress of the FACS process could change normal gene expression profiles. RNAlater could be used to stop such changes in original gene expression profiles through its ability to denature RNase and other proteins. The normal(More)
PURPOSE This phase I trial assessed the safety and tolerability of G3139 when given in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel chemotherapy. The effect of G3139 treatment on Bcl-2 expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and paired tumor biopsies was also determined. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with advanced solid malignancies received(More)
Here we introduce a modified antibody staining method that uses up to 80% less antibody for flow cytometry. We demonstrate this method for the detection of antigens expressed at high, moderate, or low levels in mouse and rat lymphocytes as well as mouse mammary epithelial cells. We obtained reproducibly accurate results for the detection of up to seven(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometric analysis of human P2X(7) pore activity segregates variant from common P2RX7 genotypes and may serve as a biomarker for cancer, pain, inflammation, and immune responses to infection. Standardization is needed to accommodate variable sample age and instrumentation differences in a multicenter clinical trial. METHODS(More)
A series of new in vitro systems for the cultivation of bloodstream forms of Trypanosoma (Trypanozoon) brucei brucei, T. (T.) b. rhodesiense, and T. (T.) b. gambiense was developed. The standard system consists of a feeder layer of fibroblast-like cells derived from embryos of New Zealand White rabbits (REF( or a mountain vole, Microtus montanus (MEF), with(More)
RATIONALE Upper respiratory tract infection is a guideline accepted risk domain for the loss of asthma control. The ionotrophic nucleotide receptor P2X(7) regulates compartmentalized acute inflammation and the immune response to airway pathogens. OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that variability in P2X(7) function contributes to neutrophilic airway inflammation(More)
